A Short History
Whirrakee Woodware was founded in 2005 by Steve Williamson a local bee keeper, who has used his knowledge of the industry, to develop durable and functional products, that would survive the rigours of the Australian environment, and last for years to come. The Acacia Williamsonii is commonly known as the Whirrakee Wattle, and this is where our name comes from. Quality, and customer satisfaction have been synonymous with our brand throughout it’s history, and new owners Pete and Ali are devoted to continuing this tradition.
Our new manufacturing site and outlet in Maryborough, is located just next to Whirrakee Rise estate! a sure sign that we are in the right place!
